The trip includes a fascinating journey to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed site Angkor Wat, a traditional Buddhist Monk blessing, and a tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels. In Phnom Penh, guests are invited to a family-owned silk-producing factory and can attend a scarf-weaving workshop in Long Khan Island. This is all through EmeraldPLUS and included excursion programmes, giving guests even more opportunities to enjoy each destination and gain new experiences.
Or for guests that want to discover more, choose the 19-day Treasures & Temples of Vietnam & Cambodia itinerary (prices start from £4,120 per person based on 07 May 2021 departure) or the 23-day Grand Tour of Vietnam and Cambodia (prices start from £4,570 per person based on 27 April 2021 departure) which both include the 15-day Majestic Mekong itinerary, with additional destinations and excursions.
The Emerald Harmony Star-Ship has been custom designed to cruise into the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, the dynamic Vietnamese city, offering river access into the heart of the city.
On all three itineraries, guests will be interested to note that Emerald Harmony has removed all single-use plastic. Initiatives include providing all guests with a complementary metal water bottle to refill from water stations on the Star-Ship. Other initiatives are also in place such as glass water bottles in the cabins, using bamboo and paper straws in the Reflections Restaurant & Horizon Bar and cabin toiletry miniatures replaced with refillable dispensers.
Prices for the 15-day Majestic Mekong river cruise include return economy flights and airport transfers, 30 meals including 12 breakfasts, 9 lunches and 9 dinners, 11 included excursions, 6 EmeraldPLUS activities (exclusive highlights to Emerald Waterways) and all tipping and gratuities.
